Ouija boards are widely considered to be one of the most dangerous forms of spiritual communication, and justly so! The main risk associated with Ouija boards is that it is a form of direct contact with the spiritual world. As such using one creates a sort of ‘gateway’ to the physical world; this allows spirits to interact with the their surroundings similar to how we can, creepy right?
Now the notorious Ouija board has a reputation for being the cause of many hauntings, why then are they still used? You see the reason that Ouija boards can cause these problems is that it is usually spiritual novices that use them without proper guidance. Most people don’t have the ability to protect themselves properly from the supernatural and this can cause problems when dealing with spirits in the physical world.
Another problem with Ouija boards is whom you are contacting. Unprepared users will have trouble directing their communication to a specific spirit, this can end poorly when a spirit that is confused about their situation. As you probably already know some spirits find it difficult to accept their death and this can cause problem when they are brought into the physical world. It’s not just confused spirits that can be contacted however; angry spirits are also a possibility.
Both of the above reasons combine to create the biggest risk when using a Ouija board, bringing a troublesome spirit into the physical world with no way to deal with them. Now if you have read the brief overview of our events you will most likely have noticed that we do use Ouija boards on our events. But what about the risks you mentioned I hear you cry!
Not to worry, you are safe!
Here at Haunted Revelations we negate these problems with the presence of a medium. A fully trained medium is guaranteed to be on all of our investigations, this allows us to use the Ouija boards without risking ourselves; this is due to the protection and guidance our medium will provide! The presence of a medium directly counters the previously stated risks; the communication will no longer be random but controlled and focused allowing for communication with non-problematic spirits.
So have no fear our hunts are completely safe! Of course you still won’t be forced to use the Ouija boards many people are weary of the potential problems and would rather not take any spooky risks (and understandably so!). So in the end what you need to know is that regardless of whether or not you use the Ouija board you will always be safe on our hunts, we hope to see you at the next one!
